We were a founding member of the silver fixing in 1897 and the gold fixing in 1919. We have also been the only member of all the London daily fixings, which include platinum and palladium.

Our capabilities include spot trading, swaps/forwards, deposits, loans, physical shipments, clearing, custody, and research. HSBC's experts are deeply involved at every stage of the value chain, from exploration and development to operations and industrial manufacturing. We have metals trading hubs and analyst teams in New York, London and Hong Kong, and sales desks located around the world, including Switzerland, Turkey and UAE.

At the heart of our offering is the ability to see the entire precious metals universe at once, from the latest exploration activity to emerging trends in supply and demand.
